Tomato Plants-diseases
« on: August 28, 2017, 01:32:59 pm »
It seems a few of my plants might have bacterial speck. The unripe fruit gets freckles. Sometimes it's just one black dot. I rip off and toss young fruit that has multiple dots. Is it safe to eat the tomato if there is only one black dot? Is it normal for some fruit to have no specks and others to have a few?

I found aphids on all of my plants now. I sprayed them with cayenne pepper mixed with water and a dab of dawn. Praying this kills them. They're IMPOSSIBLE to get rid of!!

Why did you spray that mixture in hopes it works? Use either Safer soap (organic if you're so inclined) or permethrin. If you have a problem take care of it with proven control measures.
Why Google, when you have me?

I tried the safer soap along with every other organic spray. I learned my lesson. I'm done with organic. The aphids can have what's left of my plants bc I no longer have the energy to keep fighting them.
